It has become increasingly common for adults to start orthodontic treatment – and most people are candidates. There are a range of treatment options to get your started on creating the smile you have always wanted.
At Laser + Holistic Dental we take a careful, thorough approach to orthodontics for adults. As the jaw bone is mature (unlike with children) there are a range of different variables to consider such as bone health and previous dental restorations.
When a specialist recommends extraction of teeth or jaw surgery – they are approaching the orthodontic issues from a speed perspective. In our opinion – prioritising speed for orthodontics is a short sighted approach.
At Laser + Holistic Dental our philosophy relating to orthodontics for adults aims to develop the jaw to improve breathing, natural biomechanics and to create an attractive, cosmetically pleasing smile.
When considering orthodontics for adults, our preferred treatment is Invisalign – for three main reasons:
- Cosmetic Benefits – the aligners are barely noticeable making them a more attractive option than braces.
- Hygienic Benefits – the aligners are easy to remove and clean, preventing food from being trapped like what can occur with braces.
- Health Benefits – Invisalign is metal free and uses a medical grade polymer that is made without some of the nasty plastic additives found in other products.
The Invisalign System is a virtually invisible and hygienic orthodontic treatment that uses a series of custom-made removable aligners created for you.
These aligners are made of a hi-tech polymer that you wear over your teeth to gradually move them to the ideal position. Most people won’t even notice you are wearing them, allowing you live freely while straightening any crooked teeth.

A free Invisalign consultation runs for 10-15 minutes and covers the key questions:
- Will Invisalign work for me?
- How long will Invisalign take?
- How much will Invisalign cost?
By the end of the Invisalign consultation we will have a good understanding of your goals and expectations so we can advise you on the best course of treatment.
